I love putting fun combos together! I mean, who doesn’t love Rice Krispie treats and cookie dough???
For the rice krispies, I have removed the traditional high glycemic Rice Krispies cereal, high sugar marshmallows, and butter. Instead, we are using low glycemic Puffed Rice Cereal, natural peanut butter (healthy fats), and agave which is lower glycemic. Honey can be used as well.
No cooking except for heating up a few ingredients in the microwave! Now that’s sweet!
Best of all, only 10g net carbs & 13g protein per bar!
Healthy Rice Krispie Cookie Dough Bars
– 1 Quest Nutrition Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Quest Bar
– 1/2 c Puffed Rice Cereal
– 1.5 tbsp Natural Peanut Butter
– 1/2 tbsp Agave or Honey
– 1/4 tsp (splash) Vanilla
Cut Quest bar in half & microwave for 10 seconds to soften. Press into a square bar pan or cupcake pan.
Microwave PB, agave, vanilla in a bowl for about 30 seconds until melted. Stir in cereal Make sure all the cereal is coated. If it isn’t binding enough, then add a little more PB or agave.
Split mixture in half & press on top of each Quest bar in the pan. Refrigerate for at least 2 hrs in order for it to set up.
Remove from pan and enjoy! I topped mine with just a little melted sugar free chocolate chips 🙂
